## anonymous 3 years ago What is the slope of the line that passes through the points (–2, 5) and (1, 4)? (1 point)

1. hartnn

The slope of the line through points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is given by : $$\huge m=\frac{y_1-y_2}{x_1-x_2}$$ now,just put the values and find m.

2. hartnn

so could u find m ?
